Christmas fabric postcards

A few days ago, trying to returning on  the creative domain  I thought to do some textile cards. And because Christmas is coming soon I made some simple postcards with some fabrics I had around the house, with specific themes.
They came out nice, simple, very little or no quilted at all, they  framed more in the category of craft than quilt.
Acum cateva zile, incercand sa reintru iar pe domeniul creatiei m-am gandit sa fac cateva carduri textile. Si pentru ca se apropie curand Craciunul am facut cateva carduri simple,cu materialele pe care le aveam prin casa, cu tema specifica.
Au iesit dragute, simple, foarte putin quiltuite sau deloc; se incadreaza mai mult in categoria craft decat quilt.

What is important though is that I do like to work them, I discovered that I like to work small objects, meticulous, requiring patience and less a free motion on abig quilt.Certainly  I like to creat small things than bed quilts  ..  this doesn`t mean that I will not ever do  large quilts .
And another thing, each card is working otherwise, one even in shadow trapunto technique.
This is not to get bored too much of craft too: P
Ceea este insa important este faptul ca mi-a facut placere sa le lucrez; am descoperit ca imi place sa lucrez obiecte mici, migaloase, care cer rabdare si mai putin un free motion pe metri intregi de panza.Sigur imi place mai mult sa fac lucrusoare mici decat quilturi de pat..asta insa nu inseamna ca nu voi mai face vreodata quilturi de dimensiuni mari.
Si inca ceva; fiecare card e lucrat altfel ,unul chiar in tehnica shadow trapunto.
Asta ca sa nu ma plictisesc prea mult si de craft :P

A crocheted flower, some copper wire wrapped with something that is tied packages of gifts and a applied stocking , little foam bonded with glue on which I wrote a banal statement
O floare crosetata, cateva fire de cupru invelite cu ceva cu care se leaga pachetele de cadouri si un ciorap aplicat; putin foam lipit cu glue pe care am scris o declaratie banala

Here I used cotton and felt, sequins and beads, Christmas at the Pole ...
Aici am folosit bumbac si fetru, paiete si margelute; Craciunul la Pol...

Simple, banal postacard

This card is working with organza in shadow trapunto technique. I would have liked a little more fine organza but I didn`t found from the moment to Joann store...
Acest card e lucrat cu organza in tehnica shadow trapunto. Mi-as fi dorit o organza ceva mai fina dar nu am gasit momentan la Joann...

This is it  for now, work in progress some fabric bowls with Christmas motifs. I hope to finish on time but it is up to Karina.

I had some time and I "browse" the Internet to see what else people work (is working hard) and I found  a whole collection of vintage cards, printed. Superbe! from my point of view.
I do not know why they  attracted me  probably because of the decor in  which they take place   presented scenes: calm, warm and most of the times surprising  winter fairytale landscapes...

Cam atat deocamdata; in lucru niste boluri din panza tot cu motive de Craciun. Sper sa le termin in timpul stabilit insa asta depinde numai de Karina.
Am avut ceva timp si am mai "frunzarit" internetul sa vad ce altceva mai lucreaza popoarele(se lucreaza intens ) si am dat si peste o colectie de carduri vintage, tiparite. Superbe! din punctul meu de vedere.
Nu stiu de ce ma atrag aceste carduri probabil decorul in care au loc scenele prezentate: calm, calduros si de ce cele mai multe ori surprinde peisaje de iarna de  basm...

Probably  because they evokes a world where time was more friendly with people and have a flow of  its life, slow and quiet.

A world where I would have definitely liked to live.
Probabil pentru ca evoca o lume in care timpul era mai prietenos cu oamenii iar viata avea o curgere a ei , lenta si linsitita.
O lume in care mi-ar fi placut cu siguranta sa traiesc.

O saptamana buna tuturor!
